GameTruck Portland will be on-site with fun gaming activities. We’ll have Bubble Soccer, bounce houses, an amazing giant slide, Superheroes & Disney Princesses, a photo booth, a Lightning Cupcakes & Cake cake-walk, and even a pie-eating contest featuring Hoffman Farms’ famous pies!!

There will also be an Adult Lounge, a Teen Lounge, a Kid Free Zone and amazing raffle items which include an Apple iPad Mini, an Xbox, Nike Gift Cards, and tons of other cool prizes and bundles.
